Derek Jeter said he had a bruise but expects to play tomorrow night. … Chien-Ming Wang threw 81 pitches, one over the limit they had set for him. He was obviously very good and didn’t deserve the loss. … Mike Myers had gotten Carl Crawford to pop to third on Monday night. Crawford was 4 for 21 against him before that grand slam.
